If there are parts of the external material that would be best quoted in their original language to enhance your summary, you may quote small excerpts, as long as you make it clear that they're quotations using quotation marks or blockquoting. Gershon, please be careful to properly acknowledge others' work.

comment Is there any benefit for a gentile to convert through one denomination versus another?
@R.S. Pretty sure if you don't bring a korban you are still pretty much a Jew, just you can't deal with Kodshim. I don't know the Mikdash's existence is relevant though to the requirement of bringing the Korban.

It's used in the Mishna Yoma 8:9, and you can't get much older than that. Is that what you want, or do you want the first to use it in the context of the Decalogue?

comment What is a Shabbos Kallah?
Then who are you saying follows the custom of not seeing each other? Is this answer only explaining the origin of Shabbos Kallah only in that group, or claiming that the notion only applies in that group?

comment What is a Shabbos Kallah?
What? The Ashkenazi custom is for them not to see each other for a week before the wedding? I don't think so. Neither did Rabbis Moshe Feinstein, Joseph or Aharon Solovei(t)chik and others. Perhaps you should limit your custom's scope.

These quotes are on the right track for your question, but be careful to understand their contexts before trying to apply them to a given situation.

@Shalom Indeed, and in fact he would get capital punishment for ruling contrary to the court.
